Ballyhoura Trail HALF Marathon
|Eamonn Cashin||Jun 29 2021, 4:40pm||Hi folks, I've done the event a few times. A quick question: Says the half starts at 11am, but also says 8.40am race briefing though?|
|Robbie Williams||Jun 29 2021, 5:45pm||We like a long briefing!!|
Thanks for that
The briefing is typically 15min pre race start
|Eamonn Cashin||Jun 30 2021, 1:35pm||Good man Robbie. Might bring popcorn for it!!!!!|
|Martin Cooney||Jul 1 2021, 1:57pm||Hi Robbie & Co.|
I just noticed that the entries were closed for the Ballyhoura weekend. I was just about to sign up for the Ballyhoura Half marathon on the Saturday. It lloks as if there were only 72 entries of the 150 possible places.
Is there any chane it can be opened up for the day so that I can enter please?
Many Thanks, Martin Cooney (#658).
|Robbie Williams||Jul 1 2021, 2:25pm||Will be reopening shortly |
Closes finally Tuesday 6pm
|Martin Cooney||Jul 1 2021, 2:47pm||Legend!|
Thanks Robbie & IMRA Munster.
I will be checking the Entry Closure times more closely from now on. :)
|Conor Lucey||Jul 6 2021, 9:16pm||I just missed the deadline to enter this.|
Any chance I could still enter now?
|Richard Nunan||Jul 6 2021, 9:30pm||Looks open to me|
|Aoife Quigley||Jul 9 2021, 9:33pm||Is there a map for this run? Is it a looped run?|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 9 2021, 10:05pm||Yes it is a loop|
|Rory O'Toole||Jul 12 2021, 5:51pm||Hello Robbie. Would an early start for the HM be available?|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 12 2021, 6:24pm||Hi Rory|
Yes you can start at 9:05 once the Marathon leaves
|Robbie Williams||Jul 12 2021, 6:25pm||You must let us know when you are leaving and be sure to sign in the Half Marathon registration|
|Rory O'Toole||Jul 13 2021, 8:53am||Will do, Robbie. Thanks.|
|Aideen Burke||Jul 13 2021, 10:17am||I don't suppose there's any chance of a late registration for this race?!|
|Rich Costelloe||Jul 13 2021, 10:35am||Same - I hate to be that guy.. but any chance of a entry spot opening? I was caught short, didn't notice it was closing so soon. Thanks!|
|John O Gorman||Jul 13 2021, 1:19pm||Hi Guys |
Would also have entered, didn’t realise closing date had passed.
|Robbie Williams||Jul 13 2021, 1:55pm||Sorry lads..|
We gave plenty of notice.
Completely closed now.
Aherlow and Nagles will be the next half marathons .
|Aideen Burke||Jul 13 2021, 2:03pm||No worries, that's fair enough... it was worth a shot. Best of luck, it looks like it will be a super race.|
|Rich Costelloe||Jul 14 2021, 11:50am||Thanks Robbie. I see only half the entries were taken, and with the year we've had I'd hope for a bit of flexibility, but my fault for missing this one. Will look forward to making it again next year. Enjoy!|
|Claire Heffernan||Jul 16 2021, 2:40pm||Hey Robbie,|
I'm hoping to start early too, I'm check in with you/laptop crew before hand.
|Aoife Quigley||Jul 18 2021, 1:16pm||Hi, just wondering if the route will be available to view before Saturday? Looking forward to it, first trail half for me !!|
|Andy Wonnacott||Jul 20 2021, 3:04pm||Hiya Robbie. Is this any compulsory kit for the Saturday's half marathon? I see the Friday night is full-metal jacket! Also, do we need a chip?|
|Robbie Williams||Jul 20 2021, 6:01pm||For Trail (Day) half it’s the jacket and phone.|
Obviously water and food is strongly recommend
You will need some kind of bottle to fill water from
|Barry Walsh||Jul 22 2021, 11:33am||Hi all, |
Only did this last year when it was the Seefin loop - I think the route is different this year? Is there a considerable amount of road on the route?
|Stuart Aherne||Jul 22 2021, 12:56pm||Hi, just wondering what time the registration opens and closes for the half Marathon tomorrow and I assume we register near the starting line in the school ?|
|Ciarán Ryan||Jul 22 2021, 2:05pm||@Barry Walsh |
I think this might be the route as it's the one I found on plotaroute
The organisers might be able to clarify but doesn't look like much road there thankfully!
|Stephen O Keeffe||Jul 22 2021, 2:20pm||I think that's the peaks half marathon one from last year. It starts in Kilfinane this this year I think.|
|Ciarán Ryan||Jul 22 2021, 2:21pm||Ah ok Stephen, thanks for letting me know. Oops!|
|Ciarán Ryan||Jul 22 2021, 2:45pm||Robbie Williams posted this on a previous thread so this must be the one!|
|Shane O'Brien||Jul 22 2021, 7:05pm||Hi guys, |
Brand new also and don't may have deleted the confirmation mail with race number. Is there a way for me to get it resent prior to the race? I'm also part of the last question too about time for registration and number collection.
Thanks in advance, Shane
|Robbie Williams||Jul 22 2021, 7:46pm||email going out shortly|
|John Magner||Jul 23 2021, 4:36pm||Does anyone have the route profile for the half tomorrow? Tks|
|Barry Walsh||Jul 23 2021, 5:16pm||Here you go John |
|John Magner||Jul 23 2021, 10:17pm||Sound Barry..|
|Fiona Patterson||Jul 24 2021, 5:36pm||Thanks a million to all the organisers, volunteers etc, another really well run event! Looking forward to the next one!|
|John Magner||Jul 24 2021, 5:36pm||Just a note to say, that I feel very privileged to be racing within the IMRA community. I had to pull out of the half with a calf injury after 15km and the support along the way was unbelievable. Fellow runners offering water, asking if they could help. One fella actually gave me his phone to ring to get picked up and said I will get it off you at the finishline. Didn’t even get his name.. He got his phone back, but some seriously good people out there. Thank you all. Fair play to Robbie and the team today- they put on a great race.|
|Aoife Quigley||Jul 24 2021, 11:57pm||Really enjoyed today, first IMRA outing, lovely atmosphere, well done to all involved and thanks a mill!|
|Sara Mohan||Jul 25 2021, 1:35am||Hi, |
I did the early start and it says DNF in the results. Is this usual to get DNF as a result if I do an early start?
Thanks. I had a lovely time doing the run today
|Robbie Williams||Jul 25 2021, 8:52am||Hi Sara|
Did you time in with timekeepers at the end of the course in the field ?
|Stephen O Keeffe||Jul 25 2021, 9:15am||Big thanks to the lads, (I think Sean and I can't for the life of me remember the name of the person who drove the car, sorry) who helped me get back down after suffering from heat exhaustion at around 19.5km. Gutted I couldn't finish, my first DNF ever, but better than making myself very ill. Thanks.|
|Sara Mohan||Jul 25 2021, 9:43am||Hi Robbie,|
Yes they took down my time at the finish line. Would there be a way to get it added there to the results?
|Robbie Williams||Jul 25 2021, 9:48am||Perfect Sara |
It will get sorted will u email to robbie.williams at imra dot ie the queriy
|Sara Mohan||Jul 25 2021, 12:50pm||Emailed there. Thanks a million|
|Niamh Kelly||Jul 26 2021, 2:17pm||my first race in a long time and it was brilliant I suffered in the heat the water on the route was well-timed it was a great day. |
Thanks so much to all the volunteers for your hard work over the weekend
